USSR in Space 2005 Cover (from 1988)

Scanned cover from a booklet I bought at the Boston Museum of Science in 1990. It was from a special exhibit on the Soviet Space Program. The booklet was apparently written in 1988 (judging from mentions of planned "near future" events of 1989-1992), about three years from the end of the USSR. It's an optimistic look ahead at the USSR's future in space and where they expected to be in 2005 (manned landings on Mars in 2005-2010 were projected).
